One of the few tv shows I make a point of viewing is "The Dog Whisperer" (Fridays on National Geographic Channel). We've been dog folks for quite a while. I really appreciate his outlook on working with dogs (that means I agree). Barnes & Noble is running a book discussion group about the book after this in October. So--I'm sort of lurking in the discussion and reading the first book.
We have miniature Australian Shepherds at home. I've been using some of Cesar's techniques to get them to stop harrassing the mail carrier.
On a side light. My children are making me watch the South Park episode in which Cesar comes to help a single mom learn to discipline her child. Very funny--but sad at the end.
